If I’ve learned anything, it’s there’s just no drama, which is awesome. I’ve also just learned to read when it’s a good time to talk about something serious and when it’s not. And whenever I start to have a conversation with them, and I kind of see their eyes start to glaze over, I’m like, ‘Okay, another time is better.’ You learn how to compromise and you learn how to read each other. Honestly, being in a band with two guys has prepared me so much for when it’s time for me to get married!
One of those disturbing tendencies in academic life is that there is a desire on the part of many in the name of open-mindedness to fall into a kind of relativistic denialism in which all positions are equally legitimate, all positions must be respected, and compromise must be entered into no matter what the starting point or reasonableness of the two parties.
The middle way is still driving on the wrong side of the road; it still permits the killing of the fox for pleasure. One cannot kill half a fox. Like Monty Python parrot, a fox torn apart by hounds remains dead, deceased and off its perch for ever. Before the fox has been dispatched – sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly – it will have suffered the agonies of the pursuit by animals four times its size and four times its strength. The middle way is a compromise that still seriously compromises the welfare of the fox.
If you produce yourself and you’re working in a band, there’s certain compromises everyone has to make, because it’s a democracy and you have to cater to each other’s feelings. When you have a producer, you have this objective ear that’s not worrying about protecting anybody’s feelings, so he’s just making hard decisions based on what works and what doesn’t, which was huge for us. I don’t think we’d be able to make those decisions by ourselves.
My guess is that Trump will begin withdrawing troops from Europe at a slow pace. He will demand a renovation of the Iran Accord and get nowhere with this. There might be more US sanctions on Iran. However, the Iranians will not compromise with Trump, and barring a naval confrontation in the Persian Gulf, it will be US businesses that will suffer and Trump’s frustration level that will go up.
Man… is an inextricable tangle of culture and biology. And not being simple, he is not simply good; he has… a kind of hell within him from which rise everlastingly the impulses which threaten his civilization. He has the faculty of imagining for himself more in the way of pleasure and satisfaction than he can possibly achieve. Everything that he gains he pays for in more than equal coin; compromise and the compounding with defeat constitute his best way of getting through the world. His best qualities are the result of a struggle whose outcome is tragic. Yet he is a creature of love.
